Valentine's Day Gifts at La Maison du Chocolat

La Maison du Chocolat is my go-to for luxury chocolates with new chocolate indulgences just in time for Valentine's Day. Sure to be a favorite this season are the gorgeous Floral Chocolates available in coffrets with 4, 8, 15, or 24 chocolates from $18-$78. 

Floral flavors include:

- Woody Jasmine - Crispness of dark chocolate caramel ganache enhanced with a subtle infusion of jasmine.

- Caramelized Sunflower: Crunchy center of a luscious praliné with caramelized sunflower seeds.

- Acidulous Violet: Dark chocolate ganache with acidulous notes of violets and red fruits.

- Vanilla Fleur de Sel: duo of dark chocolate ganache with vanilla from the Comoros and an almond praliné with fleur de sel. 

- Fleur de Cacao: Plain chocolate ganache from Madagascar with notes of black fruits and roasted cacao beans.

I'd also recommend the 16-piece Assorted Pralinés ($39) which includes Traviata, Pistachio, Palmira, Figaro Noir, Figaro Lait and Carya in milk and dark chocolate and the Coffret Rochers, elegantly packaged in a round gift box of 20 Rochers - milk and dark chocolate pralinés ($44). 

I recently sampled the box of the Assorted Pralinés and was trying not to eat the entire box in one sitting! I love how unique each flavor is and I love the texture of the Carya - milk chocolate praliné with slivers of caramelized pecans. Check out some other Valentine's Day gifts at

  1. Love the idea behind this gift.At first glance I thought $20 bucks for one lipstick and four little chocolates appeared overpriced yet given the former as of now has a Us$16.00 price tag paying a tad more for a beautiful packaging and a few bites of fancy deliciousness feels commendable.
